Note: Data charges may apply.
* While these features are designed to remove the message or picture the recipient’s BBM chat view, they do not prevent recipients from capturing an image of the content by taking a screenshot or using an image capture device. Retracting a message after it has been read by the recipient will remove the message from the BBM chat view, but will not affect copies of the message that the recipient may have made prior to the message being retracted.
Use the @mention feature to make introductions and share BBM contacts
Share the moment, or just share the laughs, by posting video clips to your feeds!
Not sure what to say? Now you can reply with stickers or BBMoji!
Seamlessly bring your friends back to BBM with the "invite friends" option in the contacts tab.
Ratings and Reviews
I’ve used bbm for years (since my blackberry days) and I used to prefer it to Whatsapp and FB messenger, however all the ads and non-message crap is just that - crap. I would love to see a version where all of it is gone for a fee, either buying the app outright or a small yearly subscription fee as with WhatsApp. I just want the messages (and I do like the stickers).
I also occasionally find that some messages haven’t been sent until after subsequent messages are sent later in the day, which is irritating.
Lovely app, good social
People mistakenly believe BBM belongs in the early 2010s, but I would tell these nay-sayers that they are wrong. BBM is a majestic form of social media, allowing us to be our most authentic selves. PINGing your friends to let them know you value them. BCing your friends’ pins to help expand your social circles!
Snapchat is dying so time to bring this back
Used it for 3 minuets and the memories it had brought back from school and seeing how Snapchat has messed up badly I think it’s time to bring this back
